Is there a way to actually quickly draw/paint the envelope of the note expressions on Bitwig Studio 2? Now i have to manually and very slowly put a expression value to each note with this point editor interface.

I would only like to quickly sketch the overall envelope over all the notes.

With the pen tool you I can only draw notes, not note expressions.

MAybe we're talking about different here. In the expression section of a MIDI clip I can choose between velociy, timbre, pressure, gain and pan ... none of these can be dran. And the per note pitch expression also cannot be drawn. By trying to draw I get a grey selecting box ... see screenshot Is there a video that shows how to to it correctly?

You can switch to touch screen display and "play" pich courves in real time using the mouse.

Ah. ok. But thats is not practical when doing editing of the score :). I have also expressive instruments from ROLI to do that.

You can use the pen tool to quickly draw expressions. Just next to the timeline header in the note editor there's a tool selector. Here choose the pen, and draw away! :-)

Well, if you draw in the expression section of the panel, you can draw expressions.
